Comrade Gwarzo, who also serves as the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, emphasized Kano’s significance in food production and productive enterprises, particularly in Gwarzo Local Government Area, compared to its counterparts among the 36 local governments in the state.
He made these remarks during the groundbreaking ceremony for the ‘Abz Guest Inn Hotel’ in Gwarzo, his hometown, located in the Gwarzo Local Government Area of the state.
Comrade Gwarzo asserted that the unveiling of such commercial properties aligns with Islamic principles and challenged the notion that investing in such profitable ventures was sinful. He pointed out that, like in Saudi Arabia, where hotels host visitors during Hajj or Umrah, hotels serve a crucial purpose worldwide, including in developing and underdeveloped countries.
Highlighting the hotel’s significance, he stressed that it would attract more businessmen and travelers passing through the town, subsequently boosting the area’s revenue.
The Deputy Governor also commended the philanthropic legacy of the late Alhaji Babangida Zuru and his family, who have dedicated over five decades to serving the community.
Alhaji Mansur Babangida Zuru expressed his gratitude to the Deputy Governor for gracing the ceremony and explained that the hotel’s primary goal is to provide welfare services to the local community and travelers passing through Gwarzo town.
The District Head of Gwarzo, Alhaji Shehu Kabiru, also extended his appreciation for the warm gesture, assuring the community that strict rules aligning with the cultural and religious values of Islam would be implemented judiciously.
